PetscSSLInitializeContext

Set up an SSL context suitable for initiating HTTPS requests.

Synopsis

PetscErrorCode PetscSSLInitializeContext(SSL_CTX **octx)

Output Parameter

octx -the SSL_CTX to be passed to PetscHTTPSConnect

If PETSc was ./configure -with-ssl-certificate requires the user have created a self-signed certificate with

   saws/CA.pl  -newcert  (using the passphrase of password)
   cat newkey.pem newcert.pem > sslclient.pem

and put the resulting file in either the current directory (with the application) or in the home directory. This seems kind of silly but it was all I could figure out.
